‘The Good Doctor’ Episode Preview – ‘Smile’

There are only two new episodes left in the first season of ABC’s The Good Doctor and it sure looks like Monday night’s will a doozy!

In the preview and synopsis below, we learn that Shaun’s patient is about to undergo surgery which will allow her to smile for the first time.  Trouble erupts when Shaun goes against Dr. Marcus Andrews’ diagnosis.  Shaun tells the patient that the operation is not medically necessary and that the side effects can be pretty severe which causes the patient to opt out of having the procedure done.  Meanwhile, Claire and Morgan are dealing with a patient who is lying about their identity.

Check out the official synopsis and preview below for Monday’s new episode titled Smile:
